Jim Page & Artis the Spoonman

Free Family Friendly Concert

Two of the Pacific Northwest's most popular street performers come together to celebrate summer in a free family-friendly concert at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24 at Tacoma's downtown Main Library. Jim Page and Artis the Spoonman have performed together for years - all over the US, Canada and parts of Europe. Their new CD, FolkPunch, features contemporary and hard hitting street activist music with a raggedy circus edge. Tender and argumentative. Acoustic guitar and vocals - plus the most outrageous spoon percussion on the planet. For more information on the concert visit www.tacomapubliclibrary.org or telephone the library at (253) 591-5666.

Jim Page has been on the music scene for more than 20 years, and he has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Dan Bern, Michelle Shocked, Leftover Salmon, Mickey Hart, J.J. Cale, Robert Hunter, Chuck Brodsky, and John Hammond. His songs have been performed by Christy Moore, Michael Hedges, John Trudell, The Doobie Brothers, Joanne Rand, Casey Neill, and (yes) David Soul.

Artis the Spoonman has performed on the sidewalks and bars of Seattle, San Francisco, Manhattan, Sidney, London, Dublin, Munich and Singapore, the theatres of Broadway, the stages of international and national television, and the recording studios of Frank Zappa and Soundgarden (their Grammy Award-winning song and MTV video "Spoonman" celebrates Artis' incredible artistry) . His spellbinding, faster-than-the-eye-can-track spoonplaying has been a passionate rhythm enhancement for Rock, Fusion, Folk, Jazz, Bluegrass, Classical and Uncatagorizable music, virtually everywhere. His avante-garde percussion, coupled with his contagious spirit, changes the way change audiences' ideas on cutlery.
